If you follow us on social media you will probably already know that Katie and her family from family travel blog MummyDaddyMe came away with us this season on their first ever family ski holiday. Travelling over New Year, Katie and her husband headed out to the resort of Les Gets to experience what it’s really like taking a young family with three children under the age of seven skiing for the first time.
We know the idea of skiing with for the first time with children can be daunting, with many families simply putting it off until the children are older. With this in mind we wanted to show Katie and her family that it can most definitely be done and that when you’ve got the correct provisions in-terms of childcare, a ski holiday really is great fun for the whole family!
Katie’s family stayed in our Select Chalet Le Marjorie, and you can follow her family as they experience their first family ski trip in the video below:
Katie has also written about her Ski Famille holiday in a series of holiday diary blog posts. Originally being by her own admission, more of a ‘summer holiday type of person’ Katie covers the apprehensions she experienced prior to the holiday, the pride she felt when her little girl skied her first run and the magical moment that her youngest daughter saw ‘proper snow’ for the first time. Katie also talks about how their trip fully converted them to winter holidays and gave them a new hobby that they can enjoy as a family for years to come. If you are thinking about taking the plunge and booking your first family ski holiday they are a fantastic place read a first-hand experience of the ins and outs of a Ski Famille holiday.
